Welcome to Source of Steel - The Heavy Metal Museum. For the metal head who likes to own or collect physical CDs, Source of Steel is my website dedicated to the love of physical metal on shiny plastic discs. Micro-reviews, thoughts, pics of my own collection and random utterances galore. The site started out purely as a way of sharing my rarities to like-minded fans, but now (for longevity's sake more than anything) it is open to new physical metal music bits I've picked up, including new releases and other random shit.

Enthroned - Prophecies of Pagan Fire

Here we have the 1995 debut album from legendary Belgian black metal crew Enthroned. These guys eventually got lumped in with the whole 'Norsecore' or 'Washing Machine Metal' thing which elitist tried to perpetrate to shit on the style, alongside the likes of Dark Funeral and a stack of other decent bands. Each to their own I guess - personally I love this shit. Great artwork as usual by Kris Verwimp too. Original 1st pressing on Evil Omen Records (an old offshoot label for Osmose Records).
